Searching for part of a word

Hi all,

We have recognized that search function has a restriction related to search for a part of a word.
eg "Änderungsraten" contains also "rate" but Issue will not be found.

now I tried to use a wild card like "rate" but * at the beginning will not be accepted. Is there a other possibility?

The text search engine doesn't support wildcards. You will have to use a regular expression function.

Luckily, such functions are available with the Scriptrunner plugin, which is free. Look for the IssueFieldMatch function.

Your query should look like this:

issueFunction in issueFieldMatch("project=yourproject" , "description", "rate")

Have fun!
